ZEKI TBD1083B 10" Tablet - Fully Rooting & GAPPS

Android Lounge - Android Forums - androidforums.com
I just purchased a ZEKI tablet the other day.

My general question is if this tablet can be safely rooted?

Posts I've read claims it comes pre-rooted at the factory. To my experience this is not so. I can't get such as the AVAST firewall section started. AVAST says I need root access. Nor can I install ADAWAY. Also claims it doesn't have root access.

It may or may not have a locked bootloader. Shortcuts at boot others claim gets you into recovery doesn't work on this model. They claim holding down the Volume- key at the same time as pressing the Power button gets you into recovery. As soon as you are in recovery release the volume- key. I've been trying and trying with no luck whatsoever, either it never powers up or fully boots to the home screen...

FYI:

If and then I can safely get this tablet rooted the first thing I will do is install CWR aka ROM manager to do a full backup of the factory ROM and then copy that to my PC.

As far as I can tell you can't boot from the MicroSDCard using the factory bootloader. If I can get CWR installed this might change.

It would be nice to be able to boot from the SDcard just to make a backup of the Factory ROM to the card for safekeeping.
